RE:      Bell Canada Part 1 application for forbearance from the regulation of Pay Telephone Access Lines

Dear Sir:

The Commission received a Part 1 application from Bell Canada (Bell), dated 23 June 2016, in which the company requested forbearance from the regulation of Pay Telephone Access Lines (the application).

Commission staff notes that Bell served its application on all current wholesale customers that purchase Pay Telephone Access Lines. However, in order to provide all potential interested parties with specific knowledge of the application, Bell is requested to serve a copy of its application on all registered competitive local exchange carriers operating within the territories covered by the application (Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada) by 14 July 2016.

Moreover, in order to provide all parties an adequate opportunity to comment on the application, the deadlines associated with Bell’s application are modified as follows:
